: cindy, thank you for your comment. bob is next from massachusetts. independent line. my comment is pretty much the same as the last woman's. i think the president is making the biggest mistake that we will ever hear. he can't give these people a right to keep all that stuff. they will nuke israel. there is no doubt. he will nuke israel and i bet you it will happen inside of six months. i'm sorry. have a nice day. host: mike is joining us from washington state. caller: good morning, mike. i am an iraq veteran. those to say this, countries don't care about us and they don't care about israel. ist is their whole mission to destroy israel. when people are saying that they should not be -- that they should be allowed to enrich nuclear program, what we should not be -- we should not be dealing with terrorists at all. as with what these people do. israel has been having dumped on for centuries. i am an irish italian catholic and i support israel. i don't have the same religious views, but i completely support israel. we need to stand by israel. there are christian sites in israel that
massachusetts, mr. lynch, is recognized. >> thank you, mr. chairman. i want to thank the members of the panel for coming forward and their willingness to help the committee with its work. i do want to say this at the outset, that my experience in massachusetts with the massachusetts health care, the so-called romney care, that was a precursor to this in many ways, i'm speaking of the affordable care act, also rolled out very, very, very slowly. that's my experience, being on the ground in massachusetts, when that plan went forward. so it was very slow in ramping up. of course, it didn't have the -- you know, the urgency of this program. it was sort of planned that way. and i also remember the medicare part "d" act which was a republican initiative also rolled out extremely slowly. and i know a lot of my seniors, i had to do 16 town halls around my district to try to tamp down the backlash because of the slowness of how that was ramped up. so this is not -- this experience is not out of line with those other two programs. and so i just wanted to make that note. i have had a chance to go out an
francisco and chicago and massachusetts and maine main. would you indeed reduce our utilization of other programs. massachusetts is a great example they quantifyed the individual that go into housing we actually saw a close to $6,500 reduction in medicaid costs. and most of the other studies we've seen rouksz in costs but we didn't see this real continual interaction of housing and health care pr we saw the health care providers getting into the housing and wait we didn't see the person go into the hospital but we didn't see community say health care you have 80 come to the table and housing you have to come to the table and let's work together and see the results. i'm proud to say that to san francisco is one of our projects we're looking at that what would happen if we targeted 14 of those around the country there's got to be an intellectual connection between housing and health care. so we have 4 community the state of connecticut and washington here in san francisco and also los angeles. you'll be surprised to know we're learning different things in connecticut for over the years i'v
up it doesn't work. >> if we look at massachusetts my home state. there were only 127 some-odd people in delaware and that was a problem. we only had 123 in the state of massachusetts in the first month. it's deemed a success. it depends on the young people. are they enrolling in numbers that the president would like. absolutely not. >> in my home state you had very high numbered insured, fairly wealthy state. and it was much more competently managed than the 36 federal exchanges. it's not a one to one comparison. >> 123 in massachusetts. this is 50 states. should be at least 50 times -- >> the doctor was talking about just delaware. massachusetts has a larger percentage of population. the roll out in massachusetts was lower than people expected. this is a long game. >> i'm not going to pile on the healthercare.gov website yet. low numbers. how can there be big numbers if the website doesn't work. it's obvious you'll have low numbers because if you can't log in and sign up you won't have anybody signed up. mark, how long do we give it, i guess, is the question? >> i think we're only i
time. >>> jonathan gruber is an economics professor and the key architect of massachusetts romney care law and anne filipic. i know we're rolling with the punches this morning but jonathan, we have the president meeting with insurers today trying to get their buy-in on this. i'd like to get your reaction to the president and his comments that he made yesterday, basically putting his mea culpa out there about the many admissions of this fumble. >> another mistake that we made i think was underestimating the difficulties of people purchasing insurance online and shopping for a lot of options with a lot of costs and a lot of different benefits and plans and somehow expecting that this would be very smooth. >> as we look at comparing the national issue with what happened in massachusetts, the health care rollout of that state when it happened in the early 2000s, '06, where just 123 people enrolled in that first month. then we look at obama care's weak rollout numbers they beat massachusetts numbers percentagewise and that's the standard we use to measure success. jonathan, explain to all o
different ways from different parts of the british isles so you had puritan massachusetts, anglican virginia, maryland founded by catholic family, quaker pennsylvania, dutch reform new york. the framers of the constitution understood this when they decreed there would be no religious test for federal office and the authors of the bill of rights understood when they said congress shall make no law regarding an establishment of religion which meant there would be no national religion but it also meant among other things that states could maintain their established churches, the commonwealth of massachusetts maintained an established church until 1843. americans have learned from early times not only to polk but even prosper as a nation with cultural diversity but that diversity has also led to severe strains and in one case to a seemingly irrepressible conflict. the first was the mass movement of the scotch irish from northern ireland and lowland scotland in a dozen years before the american revolution. they started coming over in some numbers in 1713 but there was a real rush, a real surge af
the fox news deck. >> watching three developing stories right now. first, massachusetts, four people found dead in one home two adults and two little kids. we're expecting new information in a news conference from police at any minute. we'll have it for you. george zimmerman arrested again. there's the new mug shot. we're waiting for the 9-1-1 call. >>> and a live look at a scene in toronto, where -- well, it will be, anyway -- where the city council is moving to strip the crack-smoking mayor of more of his power. >>> his fox news interview. >> i admitted to using illegal drugs in the last year. okay. i've admitted to drinking too much. okay. >> and there's much more to come from north america's mayor. so let's get too -- let's get to it. >> first from the news deck at 3:00 in new york city, hundreds of families are searching through piles of debris to find what remains of their homes and their lives. weather officials say more than 40 twisters tore across a wide stretch of the midwest over the weekend, bulldozing house after house, and littering entire town with debris. most people scramm
someone who was an adviser involved, jonathan gruber, an economics professor at the massachusetts institute of technology and behind the massachusetts health care plan, romney care as you may know. so mr. gruber, professor gruber, these numbers are rather disappointing, i would think. do you think that the administration is going to be able to get the website up and running enough to make the 7 million enrollee projection needed by the spring? >> you know, i don't agree with the characterization it's disappointing. i think they're meaningless. look, when we open our system in massachusetts the first month the people could pay premiums and enroll, 123 people enrolled. by the end of the year, it was 36,000. that meant we got .3% of the people the first month. by that state the federal government did great, 1.3% of the people the first month. it's too early to say anything useful. the real deadline we have to focus on is march of next year. that's when the individual mandate kicks in. that's when people need to be signed up and what we saw in massachusetts was a large rush before the

, and they will be lower because of the challenges on the website. with massachusetts, it is the president that makes sense -- precedent that makes sense to look at. you will see that the first month is going to be slow as people begin to familiarize themselves with options and then make choices they want to make when it comes to their health care. the othersident said day just a small fraction of americans would pay more. do you know what that fraction is? >> that is america question. i do not have that figure because here is the reality of what happens when you create a market that provides options to the american people. when you talk about it, and this is the focus we have discussed in the past, joe, on the portion of the percent -- 5% population that are insured in the individual insurance market, they often have one option, one carrier, one plan available, and every year that company can say your plan is canceled and here's your option, and it is usually a worse plan. what happens now to those individuals is they now have a variety of options. they have levels of coverage that begin with minimum leve
numbers would be low and increase over time as just was the experience in massachusetts where only 0.3% or 123 people paying premiums enrolled in the first month. as we've said, the problems with the website will cause the numbers to be lower than initially anticipated. just this morning we heard from republican senator robb portman who said the website's technological problems, coupled with the fine print in the affordable care act are leaving many americans uncovered. >> it's something that is even worse than many of us predicted because people are losing their coverage and not being able to sign up. >> reporter: the administration's target for year one remains seven million new enrollments in the federal marketplace. they're about 6,950,000 short of that, with 139 days to go. connell: that's a big gap, peter. what are lawmakers asking the administration to do? >> reporter: arthel, we heard democrats and republicans alike demanding an investigation but now those calls are growing louder and more specific especially now this morning from democratic north carolina senator kay hagen.
the gentleman from massachusetts. have other things you want to add? >> i think i got my last word in. >> earlier this morning, at the beginning of the hearing, chairman eyes asked about the anonymous shopper function. you said you had decided to direct cgi to disable because of defects. >> yes. >> with the gentleman yield question mark >> no. phrase, you were handed a document. it shows that there were no defects in the system. has blown up a box over the other statements made on the right-hand side of the box that 9:22.ays i have given you a sheet there that is clean from those boxes without the original blowups on their. do you have that? >> i think so. >> that is the original document. we refer me the last statement there starting with the defects identified? criticaltreated as target fixes for 9-12. >> that is what you testified for? you had found defects. yes. >> you decided to focus on compare. >> yes. the opportunity to choose the more critical function, plan compare is much more critical in the path of the consumer being able to enroll in health care as compared to the abilit
leader in the senate having lost his 60th vote in a special election in massachusetts that year, felt he could not pass anything. he could not achieve cloture with only 59 democrats to vote in favor of that motion for cloture. that's the reason why not one word was changed between christmas eve 2009 and the time this bill was actually passed. but if h.r. 3590, after it came back from the senate, came to the rules committee, did it come to the house under an open rule? no, it did no. it was a closed rule. we were kept out. process. it's hard to it -- kept house of the process. it's hard to -- the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. burgess: when a bill of this magnitude came with so little debate, so little input from the minority, yeah, we got a one-page bill before the house today. this was a 2,700-page bill that affected every man, woman, and child in this country, not just today, not just tomorrow, but for the next three decades they'll be living under this and it came under a closed rule. i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reser
, massachusetts, for democrats. you are on with trita parsi. i agree with the caller earlier who was saying why is netanyahu screaming about orion -- iran having nuclear weapons? for them to have that to have energy throughout their country and it creates jobs for their country. think we need to put israel in check. it seems like they are trying to take focus off of what they are doing in their country. they are taking all of the land andans' dividing that country. -- he feels pity because they are treating me palestinian people the same way at germany treated the israeli people. host: do think that is a fair assessment? guest: i would say that because the iranians are -- of the mpt. the and national -- the international community is -- i don'tthe fact think they need a nuclear weapons. nuclear and causes a nuclear domino effect in the middle east, then you have other countries starting nuclear weapons programs. that would eliminate a conventional superiority that iran has. it would eight p.m. -- it would -- mistake for them to host: an e-mail that we received on the subject. in what hetes doe

small business, another small business wants a $20 co-pay. so we know that from the massachusetts connector experience in small group market and we know that based on the commercial side of the market. and i have a private board that made many of these decisions with a lot of input from policy stakeholder workgroups. so we decided early on that we wanted, that we didn't want to limit products. we wanted carriers to be as innovative as they wanted to be. the one early decision that we made, which was unanimously recommended by all stakeholders including consumer groups, providers and carriers was that we would not allow benefits substitutions to the central health benefits package. and so that products could have additional benefits like acupuncture as an example, if not one of the core benefits. so the variation in product is really additional benefits on top of the essential health benefits benchmarked and the variation in your out of pocket liability. so the co-pay, coinsurance, et cetera. >> thank you. spent thank you. i also work in coalition with many asian-american organizat
economic growth. the state of massachusetts has generally been very well on this and basically massachusetts has imported high skilled, high education people. it's exported metal skill that is a relatively small state. you have got, what, six-point something million people in a little less than arizona. california has 38 million in texas has 25 million. so massachusetts is almost like a single nice metro area that's worked out pretty well. but you still have pretty high levels of any quality as well. so, you know, call on the people that say they want more inequality -- more income equality how come the places that you run have the highest income inequality. and they think the answer is you tax the middle income people out, you have high housing costs by environmental regulations and other things like california, for example but also, metro new york. no population increase in the last 40 years. it's the same. immigrants in and americans out. that's been the pattern. if you want to raise a family and you are not high income, phd educated, you have a decent job, what does the hou
, i'm from massachusetts and i grew up in massachusetts we're drenched or hunched over with history, at least by american standards but then when i moved to austin itself and on history and jeff, what was your response to that coming from houston's? >> you came from -- from houston, yeah, in houston it seemed to me growing up there really wasn't any history there. houston always seemed to me to be a city about making money. if there's a historic site, somebody thinks they can make money on, they will tear it down. [laughter] whereas if they got a little bit different here in austin and things do change, but there's just a very rich history here. i'm amazed and going around in telling the stories how little of it to details of it and the importance of it on our life now that people have been here for a long time really know. >> i wrote denizens from mark's book which applies to both of these books. he said the frontier has always proved attractive to those with a facility for conjuring utopian images. i wanted to ask both of you kind of what the frontier means in the context of the c
yesterday from mitt romney. he spent some time talking about the rollout in massachusetts. of course, obama care has been compared to that health care plan since its inception. how accurate of a picture was governor romney painting in terms of the rollout there in massachusetts? >> well, among the things i am not paying close attention to in retirement is governor romney. so i can't tell you because i don't know what he said. i will say this and this is one of the problems. in fairness to the administration -- and they clearly have much to apologize for -- the problems with the website, it was never anticipated that the federal website was going to have to do most of the country. people did not see the election of republicans in 2010 in many states who would then refuse to participate. and at the same time with the republican house refuse to provide the funding. so part of the problem with the website is that it was given a job that nobody anticipated it would have because of the unfortunate obstructionist attitude of some of the new republican governors. >> congressman barney frank, always

the national average. for example, new hampshire was 30% above the national average. massachusetts was 43%, maine, 67%, and florida, 68%. unfortunately those living in these and many other states can expect to see higher prices once again this winter, and this is precisely why we are bringing to the floor h.r. 1900. h.r. 1900 simply would bring certainty and agency accountability to the natural gas pipeline permitting process. it would allow natural gas pipelines to be built in a safe, responsible, and timely manner. it would also make existing natural gas pipelines safer. during the legislative hearing on h.r. 1900, we heard testimony from industry of a corrosive natural gas pipeline that could not be replaced in a timely manner because an agency missed the deadline to issue a permit by nearly a year. the american people demand better than this. and so as we hear discussion and consider amendments to h.r. 1900, i want to thank once again the members of the subcommittee, the staffs, and representative pompeo for all the work on this important legislation. i respectfully reserve the balanc
is that the governor of massachusetts estimated that only 123 consumers signed up in the first month but eventually tens of thousands did and now today the state has nearly universal coverage. they went from one in four people having insurance to uninsured being one in four to 2340u being one in ten. we know the results so to me it's a reminder of what our goal was which is to address double digit increases in insurance rates were preventing people from getting insurance coverage. so to me the issues of the website and software since it's part of a background i've had before, to me it's about writing code and getting things tested and it's very frustrating for andnd struggling for months months and months to get a scientific way to clean up that resource. that case it's about just getting the code right and making it work and making it function. in that case, governor romney for and got a three month did he clay. i'm not asking you to comment on that. i know the chairman asked to you comment on that. but i think there is no shame in pushing out a date based on technology. that's my opinion. and i w
into place, who was behind them and what do they say? introduced by senator ed markey of massachusetts. he just joined this year. he is one of the leading clean energy advocates on capitol hill. he cosponsored the climate change bill in 2009 with waxman, he has been planning he wanted this to be his first legislation in the senate. it says electric utilities have to provide 25% of their electricity from renewable solar, -- wind., geothermal, by 2020 five. electric utilities and natural gas have to meet efficiency targets within a period. the second was introduced by tom udall and mike udall. their first cousins, they had a similar bill, 25% by 2025 renewable energy requirement, i don't believe they had the efficiency with theirs. the raf -- ref is popular at the state level. ranging fromevels 15% to 25% over the next decade or decade and a half. it is popular among clean energy advocates and environmentalists, it does not have a lot of chance of gaining traction in this congress. republicans are in charge of the house, they're very resistant to any sort of mandate, that is what an ref is.
of his life was in vermont and new hampshire, massachusetts also. nonetheless, he knew someone in ann arbor and came from the invitation of then president dan burton invited him in 1921 to be kind of a writer in residence. now, you can't throw a stone at a university without uncovering a writer or an artist in residence. but at that time, which is after all almost a century ago, it was close to a revolutionary notion. artists are kept at a very stiff arms removed from academe and frost was not a scholar, nor a university graduate himself. he ended up receiving all sorts of honorary degrees and became often a dr. of humane letters. at the time, he was some i.d. who is more known as a farmer and private citizen. for a university to invite him and say you are a person of consequence, why do you hang around was really rather remarkable. he came in 1821. the state for a year. he went back to vermont and returned again for a couple of years. 1923 and 224. so his tenure here was relatively brief. it was nonetheless during an important. but his creative life and the problems we think of as ab
